The device is just 6.9 mm thin and nearly 150 grams with on-board LTE, 5.5-inch HD display, and MediaTek SoC.

The Gionee S6 is quite the attractive smartphone considering its relatively low price. The device can be seen as a sister model to the recently launched Elife S Plus as they have similar core features. Specifications include:

  • 5.5-inch AMOLED display
  • 1280 x 720 pixel resolution
  • 1.3 GHz MediaTek MT6753 SoC
  • 3 GB RAM
  • 32 GB eMMC w/ MicroSD up to 128 GB
  • 13 MP rear w/ LED Flash + 5 MP front cameras
  • Dual SIM (Micro-SIM + Nano-SIM)
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0
  • 3.5 mm audio, USB 2.0 Type-C
  • Android 5.1 Lollipop w/ Amigo 3.1 OS
  • 152 x 74.7 x 6.9 mm
  • 147 grams

The device will go on sale beginning November 23rd for 1700 Yuan in China or the equivalent of 250 Euros. Like the OnePlus 2, the USB Type-C port is limited to USB 2.0 speeds only and is not a "true" USB 3.0 Type-C port. The MT6753 SoC was revealed earlier this year as a low mid-range SoC with integrated Mali-T740 MP4 graphics. While not strong enough to smoothly power a 1080p display, it should be sufficient for a sub-FHD panel like the one of the Gionee S6.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
